Workplace literacy and numeracyWorkplace literacy and numeracy refer to all the reading, writing, speaking, listening, numeracy and problem-solving skills an individual needs to do his or her job effectively.

New Zealand research indicates that using this definition, four out of ten of our workers has a literacy and/or numeracy gap. The links between increased literacy levels and productivity are clear so the New Zealand government has made it easier for organisations to run programmes on-site by fully funding this training.

Staff who have been through this type of programme are generally more assertive and participative in health and safety matters. They are more engaged with quality issues and processes. And better equipped to deal with the daily problems that can occur as working in part of a team.

Most importantly, Upskills can take the hassle out of the funding application process. We can project manage the whole process from start to finish. If you think literacy and numeracy gaps might be having an impact on your business, take action now.
